The tobacco linen rota is different than the suit right?

 

Also, I like the oxford weave cotton - the texture reminds me of linen a bit

Yes a different fabric. Similar general color tone

Any pleated rotas coming in for S/S?

Nope. Pleated Rota trousers did shockingly poorly vs flat front so we won't be doing those again for a while. It's one of those things (like DB suits, 3-piece suits and FC shirts) that are regularly requested but not actually ordered.

With flat front rotas, do you guys stick with regular hems, or is a 2' cuff still viable style wise.

Or is this sort of a situation where you go " do whatever you want".

Just looking for opinions

Regular hems for me, though if I liked cuffs, I'd probably cuff them.

I am very happy then that I picked up the chalkstripe DB and 3-piece Formosas. Both were great additions to my closet and I would have been upset in the future I imagine if I hadn't purchased them. French cuff on the other hand I can do without. In fact the only shirt I have that takes links is a single cuff (as opposed to turn back for FC) for my black tie rig.

To clarify, this one isn't a casual blazer at all - the collar shape is different, and is really more of a spring and summer lightweight jacket. I just mentioned the blazers as a point of reference for fit since you had mentioned it.

Thanks man! So do you think the sizing will work out for me?

Thanks, Greg, for your response! I'm really sad to hear this! Rota pleated trousers fit great around the hip (no pocket bulging) and added extra comfort. Pleats were top-notch, too.

Was there any thought to doing reverse pleats instead of the forward pleats?

I bought the pleated fawn Rotas (first pair of forward pleated trousers, I do have reverse pleat trousers) and although I appreciate the aesthetic, I find they're not as flattering and wouldn't purchase another pair (just my opinion on myself). Reverse pleats, on the other hand, especially with the high rise and side adjusters nod[1].gif...nod[1].gif
